The government has revealed that 88 water projects constructed between 2010 and 2015 failed to meet expected standards when they were delivered, TPJ has learnt.

Minister responsible for water, Prof. Makame Mbarawa, told Parliament recently during question and answer session, that the government was evaluating all water projects in the country to identify shortcomings and that should the exercise reveal negligence all those responsible will answerable.

He told the House that shortcomings would be promptly corrected in efforts to ensure the public got the services they rightfully deserved.

Prof. Mbarawa was responding to concerns expressed by the Moshi Rural MP, Anthony Komu (CHADEMA), who complained that some contractors executed water projects at below standards, citing a project in Mbokomu Ward where "a lot of leakages lead to water woes in many areas along the project including Korini South, Kiwalaa and Korini North villages."

Prof. Mbarawa in response said the project was one among the six projects in Moshi District Council through the water sector development programme (WSDP I) and was completed on 31st July, 2014, serving 10,467 residents of Upper, Central, as well as Southern Korini respectively.

Previously, in October last year, Prof. Mbarawa had claimed that many water projects belonging to councils ended up poorly or partly done because incompetent contractors implemented them after having been contracted dubiously.

The minister made the claim after he inspected Kumbara-Litola, Milonje-Matemanga and Milonde water project in Ruvuma Region, adding that the Government was soon going to move against officials found to be behind dubious hiring of such contractors.
